"Mum! Seriously, I will be okay." explained Cornelia, pushing her mother's hands aside. "I can do it! After all, it's not like I haven't practiced enough. I've only had it for bloody fifteen years…"
"Oh darling, I'm sorry. I know it's hard on you, and I know change isn't always easy. But you'll get used to it! I'm sure everyone will be lovely, and help you." pleaded Mrs. Gartside.
"Mmm. Sure. Whatever you say mum…" Cornelia replied, throwing the worn out bandages in the rubbish. She knew what everybody would think of her. She knew that she would not be normal. And she knew that her mum had absolutely no idea what she would go through.
Cornelia grabbed all her shiny new books and her timetable, hastily shoving them in her back pack with her uncovered fingers. She placed her trusty pair of gloves on her hands, muttered a quick goodbye to her mother and was out the door.
"Take a deep breath Cornelia. You will be okay", she whispered to herself. The gloves would conceal her secret, she thought. Nobody would work it out. Hopefully.
She peered down the road to see where the school bus was. It was getting late and it still hadn't arrived yet. Just as she was about to check her watch, Cornelia's mother ran out of the house. "Cornelia! You forgot your lunch! I don't want you to be hungry."
"Umm…thanks mum. I could have bought something."
"Doesn't matter sweetheart!" she replied kissing Cornelia on the cheek, leaving a great big, red lipstick mark. "Have a fantastic day!"her mother added, rushing back inside. Cornelia turned around, a sad expression forming on her pale face. The bus had arrived, and the inhabitants had witnessed the embarrassing event. Some students had smirks across their faces, and others were full on laughing at the unknown girl.
Cornelia cringed, going as red as the lipstick on her face. She puckered up, and approached the bus taking her dignity with her. What a fantastic start to her new school life. What a boost to her self-esteem. She was already a laughing stock, and she hadn't even reached school campus.
